Automatic Data Synchronization

This connector gives you the ability to sync your data automatically in hourly, daily, or total granularity.

Available metrics and dimensions

The Dataddo Snapchat connector supports many of the fields available in the official Measurement API. The full list of metrics is available here.

Multi-account extraction

The Dataddo Snapchat connector supports automatic extraction from all the available Snapchat accounts. This feature is particularly useful when you have multiple accounts and need to automatically extract the same metrics and dimensions across them (e.g., online agencies).

* Broken view / Error message
If you cannot see a preview of your data, go back a few steps and check your setup. The most common causes are: 
  • Date range - we recommend a smaller date range. If you need to load historical data, check our guide.
  • Invalid metrics, attributes or breakdowns, or their combination - you may not have any values for them.
